I suggest everyone stay away from the server at 66.151.138.48. They go by the tag of |XTROOP| and the server slowhacks your game.

It appears to be the same setup, same fake-ping bots, and the same config slowhacks as the old Fragjunky's server ran by PowerCosmic.

Their website (www.xtroop.net) also has much of the same characteristics of the old Fragjunky's website.

STAY AWAY FROM BOTH

oh great. not HIM again. he claimed he was done with DOD and all us losers. for players that don't know who or what you're dealing with, here are a some threads about this guy. he goes by the names of Cosmic1 and SquadLeader (both of which have been banned). as you can see, the guy runs slowhacking servers and bans players that are better that him (which are the majority).

Hopefully this post will clear things up.

If you read all of this, then thank you.


I never posted that thread about shutting down my server, someone else created an account here under my old name, and on gotfrag and posted it, just to be immature and try to hurt our community.

I did shut down the Fragjunkys servers and community, while I moved and then had surgery, also because I wanted to take some time off from gaming and do other things. I changed both my web hosts and my game servers as well.

The xtroop community is here to STAY, and will eventually grow (I hope), to to be one of the largest Multi-gaming communities on the net.

We now run DoD classic, BF2-BC & CSS, we will be adding CS 1.6, Crysis 2 and The Specialists mod ver 1.5 next month.
We will add more games as I have the time to test their game play, and see if they are worth adding to the community.

We do not charge for clan membership, Admin or ask for donations from our community. We do it because we love the games.

We do not slow hack config files, we run a custom plugin, that ENFORCES the DEFAULT CLIENT CVARS, so that no player can config hack, in order to get an advantage over other players. So called LEAGUE players are famous for doing this. Just go to the TPG web site and look at the list of banned players for cheating. It's unreal that there are people still cheating at this game. ROFL.

We have an MYsql database of their steam ID's, names, IP's and even the cities that they are playing from. we also have plugins that keep track of them and will act on them as soon as they join the server.

So when we say "we know them" we mean "know them personally", as in they have played on our servers and have been banned many times over. We know their names, the sites they hang out on, and the servers they frequent. Here are just some of their names.

Cobra96 - goes by the name "Hawkeye" when playing.
Brendan
lost_ - goes by "Agape = Jesus is lord" when playing.
Yeon
Silens
Ogopogo, And many many others. the list is to long to name here.


In short, everyone plays with default settings on our servers, except for the following forced settings. Were sorry if you own a computer that was built 5 years ago or longer, but these settings & rates should work for everyone that has a box built within the last 5 years, and if they don't work for you, then you can ask for help on our forums, or here about how to get it working correctly. We will be more then glad to help you out.


We force the following settings.

cl_updaterate 50 - what everyone should have their updaterate set at.
cl_cmdrate 60 - what everyone should have their cmdrate set at.
rate 30000 - what everyone should have their rate set at, even if the servers maxrate caps it, others may not.
fps_max 98 - what everyone should have their fps set at, if they cannot get that much, they will get what they can.
fps_modem 98 - It controls how many frames per second you're modem can send. to lock down you're fps keep it at 98.
the above command is why you're fps fluctuates so much, keep them both at the same setting and they won't fluctuate as much.

dm_showplayers 0 - there was no personal radar in WW2.
m_pitch "0.0220" - default vertical mouse sensitivity, explained below.
developer "0" - Many exploits can be used if not default. + no fps advantage.
net_graph 3 - very useful and almost none of the new players know how to turn it on, and were tired being asked.
net_graphpos 1 - very useful and almost none of the new players know how to turn it on, and were tired being asked.
cl_hud_reinforcements "0" - You're not supposed to know when backup is coming.
hud_fastswitch "1" - very useful and almost none of the new players know how to turn it on, and were tired being asked.

voice_enable "1" - As admins, we will not be forced to type, to ask you to behave, while interrupting our fun. This is why we force voice on for everyone.
Read on...

I had a custom plugin coded, that will allow any player to join a channel (just like TS or ventrilo), so they won't be disrupted from too much talking by other players. This plugin also allows people who speak different languages to join a channel in their native language, and also provides a "quiet channel" and private pass worded channels, as well as invite channels. Admins can still speak to you, even if you're in a another channel, but you will not hear anyone who isn't in you're channel.


We mod our servers just enough to make it exciting, bloody and as real as it can be, before it takes too much away from the way the game was originally meant to be played.



My response to "gabb's" question in the other thread.
Why do you set these two commands:

cl_hud_reinforcements "0"
cl_dynamic_xhair 0


90% of players constantly ask my admins to help them stop the cross hair from getting bigger and then smaller as they move. that's why we force "cl_dynamic_xhair 0" so it stays smaller and is more accurate for most players.

We force "cl_hud_reinforcements "0", because in real war, you didn't know when reinforcements were going to back you up.


My response to "d10sfan" question in the other thread.
Trying to change someone's config file, no matter what justification, is still "slowhacking".

"Learn to play non-inverted"? Seriously? That has no bearing on cheating in a game. There is no reason to disable something like that, or anything else you have done.


As I have stated many many times before, we force the default m_pitch cvar, so players cannot use it to stop recoil.

Not being able to play inverted is just a bad side effect of the plugin that we use to do this. I have had exactly four players complain (in 3 years) about not being able to play inverted, sorry but I won't allow players to cheat on my server, just so you can play inverted. :P


Thanks go to,
zookwarrior - for being reasonable and level headed.



If any of you read the threads that happyfeet2391 linked to, Notice how many of those people have been banned.
I speak the truth.


The xtroop community is a small close nit group of friends but is slowly growing and is open to all who are mellow, level headed and mature.


If you believe the authors of this thread that's fine, but if you aren't swayed by the opinions of others, and want to find out things on you're own to see if they are true or not, then read our server rules at the following link.
http://www.xtroop.net/modules.php?name=Forums


I am sure you'll agree, that all we want is a place where we can frag, have fun and hang out, without immature children trying to ruin every bodies good time, because they once got banned.

And lastly,

The author that started this thread (vet) and the others who post in it, putting me down or insulting the xtroop community and warning you not to play on the xtroop servers, are simply trying to keep the xtroop servers empty because they are immature kids, (even if they are adults).


Thanks for reading this VERY long reply, it only took me about 3 minutes to write using Dragon.

Counter Strike Source: 66.151.138.57:27015

You can find the brand new builds of our DoD1.3_Ehancement_Packs for DoD classic at the following link. They will change you're game a lot, but come with an uninstaller that will remove everything except for the cross hairs. many people said I still want the custom cross hairs. :P

If advertising you're community here isn't allowed anymore, then can a mod please delete this post. Thanks and keep on fragging, no matter where you do it. :)


[edit] Moderators, please keep an eye on this thread, as the people I spoke about in it, will post insults, hoping to start a flame war. I will not respond to any negative replies, I just wanted to respond to the initial post, and thanks for giving me the chance.

The team "CHAR" in the video, was using an exploit with the BAR (Browing Automatic Rifle) that still exists to this day, in DOD 1.3.

It's used by creating an alias bind for attack 1 & attack 2, and it gives the player perfect one shot, no recoil accuracy, with no bullet sound. All you see is a bullet leave the clip. I wont say how to do it. It effectively makes the BAR a silent KAR98, so players can bar snipe with great accuracy.

The only reason they did not get caught cheating on LAN, was they had no admin standing behind them (watching) for the first match they played with Flak88. Its a bind that you can toggle off and on with a keystroke. So even if an admin had been there, it would have been hard to see.

Neither of you were even at that LAN tournament so you don't know you're facts.
Your just going by what other immature little kids have told you.

little children the both of you, just stop.

You obviously know nothing about the law. Bring it on big boy! When you claim that you don't slowhack clients, and I can PROVE that you do, I'm good with it. Go for it! I challenge you to do it!

The LAN players were not using any hack, script, alias or anything else. VIDEO HERE (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fWVApBZH7A) They were simply better than you. Accept it. You know nothing about scripting or programming. Otherwise you wouldn't have to pay others to write plugins for you.

I would do some reading on internet defamation. Anyone can be sued. All it takes is money and a lawyer. it's up to a jury or a judge if the case is proved.


Do bail enforcement work and be an officer of the court for a while and then you will learn about our court system.

Call me a liar again in a public forum, and I will hire an attorney to find you and then file suit and have the county sheriff in you're county serve the papers on you.

I'm not even joking about this. Now, whether I win in court is another matter completely. I can say right now, that depending on what you say and how you publish it, will determine my chances of winning my case.

When you accuse someone of being a liar in a public forum, blog, radio or on TV, Proof is the only defense for that type of defamation. Saying that a person lied about one thing, does not prove they are a liar about all things.

I am an intelligent adult with the means to cause anyone that does my internet or public reputation harm, a lot of trouble

I have several attorneys on retainer right now, that I could give this challenge to, if you defame me again.

You can accuse me of slow hacking peoples configs or whatever, but you cannot call me a liar in a public forum. Do some reading on those links I posted, or others and then post you're response here.

If you call me a liar again here, on the amxx site, or anywhere else and I see it in print, then I will phone my attorney. if you really knew anything about what I stand for as a human being and a US citizen, then you know I am not kidding, funning around or joking about this matter.


[edit] I just spoke with an civil rights attorney friend of mine, and he says and I quote,

"the problem with internet defamation, is that almost no one uses their real name on the internet, so this precludes defamation, because the person calling the other a liar, is just saying that about a fictitious individual" END QUOTE.

But if I was using my real name here or anywhere else and you called me a liar, you would be liable for defamation.

Well I guess I will have to start signing up with my real name on all of the forums I frequent, Or I could just do this, My real name is Kyle McDonald and anyone that calls me a liar (by my real name) is going to get sued for defamation of character.

I see you didn't actually have the nerve to test if I speak the truth "livewired". call me a liar and see what happens, instead of spamming lame remarks.

All you kids, are just bitter and jaded and think that everyone on the internet is a liar, because you hang around other kids and people, who constantly lie or talk out their wazoo about things they know anything about.

There is a big problem with thinking and living that way and I will tell you about that here.

If you become jaded and bitter, you also tend to become a knee jerk reactionary, and when that happens, you just label people without really knowing the truth about them, or the situation surrounding the event that lead you to act the way you did that got you into trouble.

This can lead to getting yourself in very bad legal situations, and in some cases if you act that way when the person is standing in front of you, can be dangerous to you're physical being.

You learn that really quickly doing any type of law enforcement, armed security, bounty hunting or body guard work.

Just try not to be so immature, act like you would act if you were talking to you're 70 year old grand mother. be a decent human being and treat others with respect.

DO NOT always assume the person you're dealing with is lying. I know this is hard on the internet, but you have to give people a chance to explain the situation without judging them wrongfully.

In short, grow up.

The whole problem lies in the definition of the term "slow hacking".

Some people on the amxx site say, that slow hacking is altering a players config file for any reason. I do not agree. I think that using the cvar_enforcer plugin (which is not a publicly released plugin) to keep a players client side cvars at default, should not be considered slow hacking. When the game allows for the client to adjust m_pitch in order to completely stop recoil, then that is something that needs to be protected so that others don't get an advantage.

cosmic is full of it. my bro-in-law is a lawyer with a top chicago law firm (shameless plug here (http://www.skadden.com/default.cfm)) and since I found this topic interesting, i had a quick chat with him about this. he says (this is an actual lawyer talking now, not some crazy, slowhacking server op) that if the person is using his real identity (name, address etc) and is well known, then they may have a case. both parties would have to be easily identifiable. but if either are hiding behind an avatar (which we all are) you can pretty much do and say whatever you want because an avatar is an entity, not a real person, and thus has no protection, or liability.

so in other words, cosmic is blowing smoke. he's trying to make himself sound important and scary. he lives in a dream world. i think he use to be a mall security guard, so he thinks he knows something about the law.

i love how he calls his slowhacking activities 'cvar enforcement'.

If he would only place an option on his server offering players an opportunity to leave before the CVars are hacked, the issue would be moot.

I've played on several servers that make players agree to the server rules before they're allowed to join a team. He could do the same. Simply state;
This server alters your play settings. If you don't agree to this, leave now.

But for some reason, he prefers to slowhack players without their knowledge or a warning. Why is that?

PS:
1) I'm still waiting to hear from one of the many lawyers you have on retainer.
2) I'm still not banned from your server (or any other server for that matter).
